Doppler S7R 70cc cylinder kit 12-15hp - Piaggio LC engines

Back out of hiding comes the S7R 70cc cylinder kit from Doppler with great performance and an amazing price tag. At only £117.45 you really can't get any better power for your money: 12-15hp!

As you might have guessed this kit has been heavily discounted. Why? Because we can. Not capable of being sold in France, the home of Doppler, has left a good number of kits with a bleak future, until now.

The only bad thing about this is that we only have it available for the liquid cooled Piaggio 2T engines but if this fits your ped's requirements, get one while you can, we can assure 100% grin factor.

The North Run 2010 - Video

Video footage from Sunday's North Run to sunny Scarborough is now online - six hours of footage crammed into four minutes. As you can imagine it's a nigh on impossible task getting a shot of everyone in the video, apologies if you didn't make an appearance this time, keep your eyes peeled for extended coverage of the event on YouTube. As it transpired it was an eventful day (predicted chaos) with a even bigger turnout compared to last year's North Run. A big thank you to everyone who joined this year's run regardless of the poor weather at the start of the day. Special thanks to everyone who helped out in particular the marshals and the breakdown crew for their invaluable assistance and indeed patience throughout the day. Pics to follow! Now sit back and enjoy the video:
